Survey: Who reads P.G. Wodehouse in the 21st Century?

What Ho, What Ho!
I’m conducting some research to better understand the people who read and enjoy the works of P.G. Wodehouse. I’d be chuffed if you’d assist me in this project by completing this short survey. If you click on the text below, it will take you to the relevant Survey Monkey page:
I’ll be following this up with a second survey, ‘Who do you identify with in Wodehouse’s world?’ The results will be shared here, and with other Wodehouse readers in various formats.

if you can contribute – and help spread the word – I’d be much obliged.

    1. Thanks so much. My first attempt at a survey, so there were a few hic-ups, but I’ve smoothed them out now hopefully. The second survey (to be posted soon) will be less about demographics, and hopefully more fun.

    1. Hi Neil. Simply click on the text link in the blog piece, which will take you to the relevant page. I have revised my post today to make this clearer. Sorry for the confusion. Honoria.


    1. Thanks for taking the time to share this Bengt. If there is any way of promoting this survey to Swedish readers, it would be excellent to see this reflected in the final survey data, which I hope to share at the next Wodehouse convention in Seattle – if the data turns out to be usable.


  1. I don’t think I’m doing this right because I can’t find a survey anywhere. Is there a list of questions to be answered? Maybe a few words about myself and P. G. Wodehouse would suffice. I have been reading Wodehouse since I was in high school and the first books were The Code of the Woosters (Dell pb) and a Pocket Books collection called The Best of Wodehouse, edited by Scott Meredith. Years later I began collecting him I remember writing a letter to Blackwell’s in which I must have said “Send me everything” because in a few weeks I came home from my job at the college library and found five huge packages had been delivered. I lined everything up in chronological order in a bookcase and started in. I have now reached the 1960s. I also wrote him an occasional fan letter which he always answered. The first one began “Awfully glad you like my stuff.”


    1. Thanks so much for taking the time to comment, Randy. How wonderful that you wrote that Wodehouse and that he responded. If you would like to do the survey, you will find it can be accessed by clicking on the link in the text above. This will take you to the Survey Monkey website, which is hosting the survey. There are just 10 questions. My aim is to share results at the next Wodehouse convention in Seattle, as well as share them here at this website. Thanks so much, again.


  2. Dear Honoria, I feel so happy to have stumbled upon your blog, I’m relatively new to the Wodehouse world and have a lot of reading ahead of me. I do wish you’d post some of his poems too since they’re absolutely fantastic.


      1. I didn’t mean to being pressing for a post (though I do enjoy them!). Just wanted to let you know you had been missed. I’m so sorry to hear about illness in the family. Wishing you and yours a wonderful new year ahead!
